Summary for WeekCalculated Risk 
It was a very light week for economic data, but the key report - March retail sales - was disappointing. Consumer sentiment was also weak in early April. However initial weekly unemployment claims declined sharply, and the number of job openings is at the highest level since 2008. So there was a little good economic news.
